Bengaluru-based The Akshaya Patra Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation established in 2000, that provides mid-day meals to schoolchildren, with the vision that “No child in India shall be deprived of education because of hunger.”

Partnering with 10 State Governments at 25 locations around India, Akshaya Patra manages state-of-the-art kitchens where nutritious food is prepared in hygienic premises and delivered to schools within a fixed radius every day. A total of 13,210 schools are supplied meals by this Foundation.

Its efforts have been recognised in numerous studies- by the Harvard Business School and HPCL’s Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives, for instance.

Akshaya Patra recently opened a new kitchen, the first in Maharashtra, in Nagpur. This kitchen has the capacity to prepare meals for 5000 schoolchildren.

Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis inaugurated the centralised kitchen on August 20. Also present were Shri Chanchalapathi Dasa, Vice Chairman, The Akshaya Patra Foundation, and Minister for Road Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari. The Chief Minister also served food prepared in the Akshaya Patra Kitchen to the school-going beneficiaries on the occasion.

Our sincerest wishes for the success and growth of the initiative!
